. and it reminds me of katrina, which is to say that i think that, you know, we think of the iraq war as cratering george bush's popularity, but it wasn't until katrina came along. and i think coalesce an argument that people were making which was that, you know, government had become sort of demonized by the bush white house and the republican congress and that we were seeing the potential effects of a government that couldn't respond in an emergency and that there was a substantive basis for that, for saying that we have to have a strong infrastructure. we have to be able to respond on a large scale quickly in a crisis. so i think to your point, yes. i think that is a fair argument to make right now. i think it's a little unfair that people are saying romney basically wants to abolish fema. there's a complicated debate that has a lot to do with sending responsibilities back to the states. i've heard people that romney basically wants to do away with fema. i don't think that's quite right. >> michael, there was a tweet yesterday that amused me from @lolgop who by the way everyone should follow. h

katrina which, you know, so many people blamed the response of fema and so forth on george w. bush. >> are well, it was kind of a benign neglect at that point in time. the president, as you may recall, flew over it initially. he had an idiot running the fema who's still popping off, mr. brown. i think fema is absolutely an agency on the ground here doing wonderful things. the end of the day the one entity of the federal government that works better than anybody else is the military, and sooner or later we're going to have to put a general in the charge as we did katrina, let them get all the stuff done. they have the equipment, the resources, the manpower, and we've got a big problem ahead. and three or four days from now this is going to continue to be a burden for a lot of people's lives, and you're going to need to respond.

of hurricane katrina. that's trouble for roughly 100% of re-elected presidents since 1972. yes, it's enough to give you second thoughts about that second term. so is there anything the obama team can do to prevent this? now, as bill clinton might say. >> it depends upon what the meaning of the word "is" is. >> reporter: the fact is, if there is going to be a second-term scandal, its seeds were probably sewn in the first term. the watergate break-in, nixon's first term. the actual iran contra deal, reagan's first term. bill clinton's liaison with lewinsky, first term. the actual plame leaks, first term. so if the obama team was going to mess up, history suggests, they already did. maybe it's something that has made headlines already, but maybe not. remember, the lewinsky scandal didn't surface until 1998. maybe the obama administration will make its own history and avoid a second-term scandal. but if not, disney world may seem very appealing. you know, it was interesting, in the president's news conference, he said he was well aware of the history of presidential overreach in second terms. t

for his handling of the recovery in the wake of hurricane katrina. so you have the republican governors getting things done and providing a model of how they can transition. >> on the map right now california is reading blue in terms of the gubernatorial leading, but california, for instance, has had a whole series of republican governors. we have pennsylvania. we have new jersey, as you just mentioned. are all of these republican governors successful for very different reasons? >>. >> there's a whole swath of policy interests. and another thing that you can look at with the republican gubernatorial is diversity. you have hispanic governors in nevada. they won election of 2010. susanna martinez who got rave reviews for the convention speech at the the republican national convention. you see the republican wing in congress being very, very white. a lot of males dominating the caucus. on the governor's side you have a lot of hispanic and indiana-american governor es showing the way. >> you make the point that four of the five women serving as governors in 2013 are republicans. you look at
the katrina case, but a hard, hard case to win. it's an act of god. we set up and were properly set up an ordinary storm, but not something like this. 100 year storm. >> when you look at the cases dealing with katrina. do you think they have a pretty strong case, that they're not ultimately going to lose this? >> well, i think the utilities can put a strong defense on the board. the defense being we didn't anticipate a storm of this magnitude hitting the east coast of the united states. e-mail yonz of dollars were recovered in many suits against utilities, marinas, the u.s. army corps of engineers, huge numbers of class actions filed during the course of that litigation. bp, of course, just settled today in a criminal case. i wouldn't say that, you know, the long island people and the new jersey people are going to lose. they have got to prove that this was gross nelgs, that they should have anticipated a storm of this magnitude, and weren't properly prepared. >> also, breach of contract. you mentioned that as well. how did they do that? >> well, whenever you sign up with the utility c
-- well, except look at the price tag of repairing things after stuff. look at katrina and now sandy. you know, sandy wasn't especially a big hurricane, as hurricanes go. it just happened to get deflected ashore in an inopportune place, and from a geological standpoint, you know, katrina was 2005. sandy is 2012. in a sense of deep time, that's like the blink of an eye. it's just happened like that. if these storms happen every five years, then every four years, this is going to be very expensive and traumatic thing, and that's just in the developed world where we have the means to feed 50,000 people on thanksgiving day, but in developing worlds, it leads to just horrible trauma, and we have huge inefficient sis, and there's going to be conflict over transportation and clean water and who gets the rights to live in the right -- in the most desirable places. this could be a turning point. i am an advocate of doing everything all at once. >> so to both of you as we wrap it up, real quick then, do you believe, the both of you, we're going to see more, larger, begger, more frequent storms as a

superstorm sandy could cause more than -- could cost more than hurricane katrina. andrew cuomo says the superstorm will cost $42 billion. new york like other states appealing for federal aid. 110 people died in the region during the storm. nearly 1,800 lost their lives in hurricane katrina. >>> in the heart of sydney, australia, the arm of a construction crane falls on to a building, barely missing busy broadway street. the collapse happened after a fire involved the cab of the crane. just two weeks ago the construction site was shut down when workers walked off the job because of a gas leak. >>> technology and the law colliding, especially when it comes to cell phone use. it's a bad between your right to privacy and a lawful search of your cell phone. in rhode island, for example, a judge threw out cell phone evidence two months ago in the case of a man charged with killing a 6-year-old boy. in louisiana, a federal appeals court is reviewing how to handle location records stored on cell phones. on thursday, a senate committee will consider making changes to a 1986 law on electronic
